Redouane was born in Rotterdam to two Moroccan immigrant parents, his father worked in the mines near Rotterdam in the early 70's. Redouane was brought up in the district of Feijenoord in the South of Rotterdam. A neighboorhood known for it's huge amounts of foreigners, with typical Moroccan and muslim culture but didn't really listen to his parents after he reached his teenager years. He started dealing drugs for the local MOB, doing this for a couple of years before being arrested in 2016. He was sentenced to two years in Prison, after he got out the local MOB contacted him and told him that they had a job for him. He had to drive a car to Chernarus and find people to buy a shipment of AK's, he would be paid €5,000 for doing so. In desperate need of cash after getting out of Jail he decided to do it and brought his Brother Samir along. They ended up in Chernarus a couple of days before the outbreak happened, eventually being stuck in the country after the border was put on lock down. They have been roaming around Chernarus since.
